The brainchild of aircraft mechanic and ufologist George Van Tassel — who began construction on the building in the s after an alleged jaunt on board a Venusian spaceship — the Integratron was intended as a machine that could rejuvenate living cells. Tassel also considered it to have potential as a time machine and anti-gravity device, though unfortunately it is yet to send anyone floating peacefully back to the middle ages. Still, the structure itself, an acoustically perfect "resonant tabernacle", is quite remarkable.
Tassel didn't use a single metal screw or nail to build the Integratron, which was constructed only from wood, fibreglass, glass and concrete. Sadly, he died suddenly in , before being able to put it to the test.

Now, the Integratron is run by two sisters, Nancy and Joanne Karl, who bought the building in and run regular tours of the site. As well as attracting fans of new age and alternative healing, many musicians pay it a visit, presumably while on the hunt for that elusive new sound. Perhaps the most popular offering at the Integratron are the " sound baths " — hour-long sonic-healing sessions, described as "kindergarten naptime for grown-ups in a sound sphere".
Participants lie back in the dome's main chamber and immerse themselves in the sound produced by a series of quartz crystal bowls, which resonate within the room. Writer and photographer Shannon Switzer had a chance to try a sound bath earlier this year.

Driving through the desert to get to it, meeting the community who keeps it running and learning about the geological phenomenon, all culminate in something special. Boulders aren't known for their music-making potential unless you count dull thuds , which is what makes the round stones at Pennsylvania's Ringing Rocks Park so unique. The rocks that fill the open field in Upper Black Eddy produce a bell-like sound when struck.
Bizarrely, even though all of the rocks are made from the same material, only a third of them make a ringing sound. Stranger still, when removed from the field, the rocks go silent. Scientists have struggled to explain the ringing, which some locals put down to supernatural forces. Is it the site of paranormal activity? Or merely a collection of optical illusions? You'll have to visit this "mystery spot" yourself to find out.
In an area once known by Native Americans as the Forbidden Ground, this popular roadside attraction in Gold Hill, Oregon, claims to be a place where the laws of physics are meaningless. It features a House of Mystery, an old office building that slid from its foundations and now appears distorted, as well as photo spots that appear to change the relative heights of people when they stand next to each other.
Among the abundant artefacts, photographs and "evidence", you will find a rather freaky recreation of an alien autopsy, complete with rather dapper-looking man in a trilby reaching for the surgical tools.

As with UFOs, seeing is believing. A superb vegan restaurant in hipster Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Very close to the L train so it's about a 10 minute journey from Manhattan's Union Square…. One of the biggest flea markets in Florida and a great place for tourist shopping and a lot of it outdoors in the Florida sun. You can check out a performance here. Forgot your password?
